BARRE — Dixie Cichinski of Roxbury was seen walking into the Price Chopper supermarket on the Barre Montpelier Road Sunday wearing shorts, a tank top and a very visible handgun strapped to her body. The Bridge approached her as she was perusing the produce aisle and said, “is that a handgun?” She said, “yes.”
“Because I can,” Cichinski said. She further said she purchased it from R & L Archery in Barre.
“It’s protection. I’m going to use it if I have to.” She said she feels sorry for people who don’t know how to use a gun. She said she had problems with people in the past.
